Erykah Badu Pleaded Not Guilty of Controversial Video


Erykah Badu


Charged for going nude in public for the shooting of 'Window Seat', the singer is adamant she does nothing wrong and enters non guilty plea.

Erykah Badu has pleaded not guilty to a charge of disorderly conduct after a female bystander made an official complaint about the singer's public nudity during a controversial video shoot.

The R&B star performed a full striptease in front of stunned strangers as she walked along Dealey Plaza, a tourist hotspot in Dallas, Texas where President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. The footage appears in her new Window Seat promo.

One woman who watched Badu bare all complained to cops, and Dallas police officials charged the star with disorderly conduct. But Badu is adamant she didn't do anything wrong and entered a plea of not guilty in court on Wednesday, April 28, according to the Dallas Morning News.

If convicted, Badu faces a fine of up to $500.

    people that called what mz. badu did a 'striptease' are exactly who she was making a point about in her video. "They play it safe, are quick to assassinate what they do not understand...... Afraid to respect the individual" i say mz badu is amazing, always has been and is an inspiration. never change girl because it is strong women like YOU who give the rest of us the courage to stand up, be ourselves and make a change.

    I watched the video, and there was no conduct that was disorderly. Notice the police can't charge her with "nudity", since simply being naked isn't illegal, the charges always include some trumped up line about disturbing the peace or disorderly conduct. I hope she wins her case.
